DIY Detox Clay Mask
Secretly, I am a girly girl and love to wear make-up, do fun face masks and put nail polish on my tiny toes. Sounds like a fun Saturday night, no? I do always try to use homemade products, as they are cheaper and this way, I avoid all the toxins in conventional beauty products. This DIY detox clay mask is very soothing on the face and draws out impurities and toxins from the skin with the help of the green clay, apple cider vinegar and mac root. The role of the Frankincense is to help smooth the appearance of fine lines for a more youthful look.
Green Clay – an organic material comprised of a host of essential minerals, iron oxides, and decomposed plant material such as kelp and seaweed. It acts as magnet drawing dirt from the pores and is beneficial in removing impurities and tightening the pores, toning the skin, exfoliating dead skin cells and reducing inflammation in acne. Just take not that if you have dry or sensitive skin, the clay mask should only be applied once a week, as the clay will absorb moisture from the skin along with any impurities.
Maca Root – rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids. However, there are not many studies that have been done on the use of maca topically (though there is a maca product supplier who states that their studies showed it structurally enhanced the firmness of skin and boosted its inherent protective abilities). All I know is that it feels great on my skin and seems to be doing what it claims to do.
Frankincense Essential Oil – It is known to maintain the appearance of healthy, and toned skin as well as it may help smooth the appearance of fine lines for a more youthful look. It is also create uplifting atmosphere when inhaled. Therefore, if nothing else, you will feel great sitting with this mask on.
